    Lucy is a sweet Rotti x girl, 4 yrs old. She is good on a leash and even likes to walk next to you when off leash! Recall is good, but ongoing training is a must. Behaves indoors but sleeps outside. Lucy would benefit most with a strong owner, other dogs Ok, however no cats or young children.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-21-00597Bella (female)

Australian Kelpie    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Bella is an 18 month old Kelpie - unfortunately she is too active to live in a residential area. Ultimately she needs to be on a farm or with someone who can give her attention and stimulation most of the day. She is very intelligent and learns new things quickly. She has a natural herding instinct - not something we've ever shown her but she knew how to do. I love her to bits but she's not happy living in my backyard and needs more space, exercise and enrichment.

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-13-00821Max (male)

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Medium Male Boxer Located in New South Wales The greying muzzle simply gives him a distinguished look; this boy is active, playful and behaves just like a pup - very typical of the Boxer breed. Max was surrendered to the pound by his owner and now finds himself looking for a long term home where he will be loved and cared for indefinitely. He bounces around in his kennel like and is delighted to be paid any attention. An agile dog, Max will require regular exercise and a reasonable sized backyard in which to play. His new family would ideally be one with Boxer experience, and possibly another Boxer in the home. Max is not a fan of ... (Read More)little dogs, so a home with a small dog is not an option for this guy (and no cats either). Being a Boxer, Max has special needs like all Boxers, so the home we are seeking should be one where they are familiar with the breed and can accommodate and care for a Boxer. As we get to know Max better, we will add more information, however we can say that Max is a delightful boy who is sure to please any Boxer loving family. Any further training should be simple as Max is very food focussed and will do almost anything for a treat ! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-10-13-00818Coco & Whitey

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    NSW - Coco (f/6y) and Whitey (m/6y) A regretful surrender; this gorgeous pair of Boxers are in need of a home together. They absolutely adore each other and their new home must be one where they can continue to enjoy each other's company. Their family can, sadly, no longer keep them and writes the following about them: 'These two have been an inseparable pair since they were puppies. Whitey was born 18.8.07 & Coco 14.9.07; they are both now 6yrs old. They are very affectionate to each other things such as kisses, sleeping next to each other and laying on top of one another, sharing toys and even their dry food. Whitey is a bit of a guts ... (Read More)when it comes to dinner time, so his new family need to make sure Coco eats separately as she is a slower eater. It would also be wise to use a 'scoff stopper' bowl with Whitey which will slow down his eating to avoid issues with digestion/bloat. With people they know & trust, they love their time spent cuddling, receiving affection & playtime. Whitey is a very friendly boy with both other dogs & strangers, Coco however may be smaller but is the Alpha of the pair. She does not always get along with new dogs & strangers but with the correct introduction to both she soon warms up to them. Whitey is completely deaf but follows his partner (when he isn't asleep) with when to bark & when to respond. He responds to commands just like Coco does with simple hand gestures & food rewards, both being disciplined with simple commands. Both share interests in cats as they will sit & watch with curiosity, unless the cat decides to run away then they like to chase. They are both funny characters together & individually. Always wanting attention, cuddles & affection from the family. They enjoy their car trips with the windows down in the back of my station wagon. In the evenings they love to be inside on their mat and cuddle up to one another whilst over looking the family. SOS would prefer they be indoor/outdoor dogs as Boxers can be very susceptible to the elements & the extreme heat and cold can have a negative effect on them. In Winter they will both need their coats on and in Summer have access to lots of shade, shelter and water (& not be walked during the hottest part of the day). Whitey does get allergies to some weeds. He has in the past had a rash under his belly which has been cleared up for over a year now and his tearing in one eye will get worse if he is showing a reaction to something in the yard. Boxers & many breeds can be affected by various plants/grasses in the garden. Wandering Jew is a problem & will cause irritation to many dogs, so this would need to be removed from their backyard. The two will spend hours laying in the morning sun, playing with their toys in the yard and chasing each other. Coco is fantastic at playing fetch and Whitey is great at intercepting her returns. In the summer Coco loves the water. Whitey will play in a kiddy pool filled with water too. A kids wading pool would be ideal for this pair to cool down and enjoy the sunny days.. These two are very intelligent, loving, funny characters and due to unforeseeable circumstances I am unable to keep them. They will be greatly missed but never forgotten in our hearts.' If you have experience with the Boxer breed & you believe your home could be ideal for this lovely pair, please get in touch with us. Whitey is deaf, so a family with experience with deaf dogs (or prepared to learn) is recommended. (Less)

Rottweiler    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Mia has been a loving member of our family for the past 5 years. During that time, she has predominantly been a inside dog, spending lots of time by our side. - Although she is happy to spend time outside when needed. She loves long walks, and after the initial first few minutes of excitement she settles down and walks really well, happy passing other dogs without a fuss. - She even happy to go for us to pick up the pace and run for a km or two. Mia's health is fantastic, although she could benefit from losing a few kilograms. We had the Pen-Hip X-Ray and tests done a few years ago and her hip score was excellent - in the 90th ... (Read More)percentile. We have two very young, active and playful children which we can't keep with Mia. We don't want to leave Mia outside for long periods of time and feel it's better to find her a new home. Mia's ideal home would perhaps have older children, or no children, and able to provide her with lots of love and affection. Mia is located in the South East suburbs of Melbourne, we are happy to drive her around to find the perfect home for her. (Less)

She will do well in a home that will teach her things through positive reinforcement training as well as keeping her mentally stimulated through items such as treat balls and Kongs stuffed with her meals. Bubbles loves companionship and will thrive on being an indoor dog. Bubbles does have some skin issues which will need to be discussed when meeting her.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-21-00476Portia (female)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Portia. She is approximately 18 months old with a lovely temperament. Her carers had a DNA test completed on her and now know that she is Mastiff/Miniature Bull Terrier Cross on one side and Bulldog/Great Dane Cross on the other. She is mostly black in colour with some white patches and brindle on her legs. She was found starving and malnourished, with no collar or micro-chip, on the streets of Coolah. Portia is now house-trained, can use a doggy door (which she amazingly fits through) and understands basic instructions. She has been receiving some behaviour training which will need to be continued in her new home. She is getting ... (Read More)better at not jumping and learning to sit before she is fed. Now that she is no longer stressed and in a routine, it is easier for her to learn better manners. However, she is still a little excitable and would suit a family with older children who are experienced with larger dogs. Portia also gets along very well with her foster sister, Boo (Kelpie x), but would probably fare better as an only dog. When we took Portia to the busy, local markets, she walked calmly around and even let a couple of children pat her. She is a well-behaved, intelligent and loyal girl who would suit most family situations; although she hasn't been observed around cats. Portia would be very good to have around the home, because she is very protective of her humans. Having said that, Portia is not known to bark without reason. Portia has been sleeping indoors at her carers, but is a little too big for the bed. Portia is de-sexed, fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, wormed and is in urgent need of a good home, temporary or otherwise. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Australia
    Dogs can make good pets in Australia if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
